Hi! I learnt a new word few minutes ago 'disenchanted', I came up with an example ' I am no longer disenchanted with the delusion about my ex-boy friend.' Is this correct? Thanks for helping! XX
Jennifer, you used "disenchanted" properly but then I am not sure what you want to say with "delusional". Do you mean to say you were delusional about your ex-boyfriend? Or that your ex-boyfriend deceived you in some way.
If he deceived you in some way then I think a better construction might be:
"I am no longer disenchanted with the deception of my ex-boyfriend."
Delusional is more often associated with a state of "confusion".
Hope that helps.
"Disenchanted" means "I was once enchanted but I stopped being enchanted."
"Enchanted" here doesn't carry any feeling of magic or sorcery, it means "delighted."
Here are some examples of use.
"I used to be a supporter of politician X, but I became disenchanted with him when he didn't keep any of his promises."
"I used to think Susan was charming, but lately I've become disenchanted with her."
